One of the most consistent questions we've been asked since the creation of AnnArbor.com was announced is the location of our office.
We said we wanted to be in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor, in a place that's highly visible and accessible to the community. We found that spot at 301 E. Liberty St.
In July we'll open our offices in 12,000 square feet of space on the first and seventh floors of 301 E. Liberty St. There will be a welcoming and interactive atmosphere at this office.
The first floor will have free wireless Internet access. We'll have comfortable couches and chairs to foster a relaxed environment where local folks can gather to discuss news and events, or simply surf the Web. Additionally, there will be a conference room that local groups may reserve as scheduling permits. There will be ample outdoor gathering space, too.
Most of AnnArbor.com's employees will occupy the seventh floor, although some members of our staff will regularly work on the first floor. We'll invite conversation and collaboration to take place in our space.
The location of our office will be ideal for our stated goal of being of, by and for the community. The office is within walking distance to the public library, the main bus station, government buildings and many restaurants, retailers and other businesses. It is truly in the center of Ann Arbor's core downtown business district.
We're anxious to move in and we'll keep you updated on our progress. And once we're in the space, don't be a stranger. We hope you'll stop by to visit.
